Dog Beach Safety Tips: Be sure to check the tides daily as currents are strong. Low tide is the best time for you and your pup to go for a dip in the ocean. Always remember to clean up after your pooch. Even though dogs can be off the leash at these beaches, always keep an eye on them for their safety as well as other the dogs and owners. Never let a dog swim alone!
